"IP ranges blocked for intrusion attempts belong to Fastly."

What do you like best?

Have been getting by for some time bypassing Fastly.

What do you dislike?

Just found access to OCSP servers of several financial institutions routed through Fastly's IP's, which were blocked for security issues. It also should be noted the community on Norton's Safeweb also doesn't trust Fastly. Oddly, I was going to underscore that but received the same OCSP error for exactly the same reason....

Recommendations to others considering the product

A content hoster should at least be trusted. If they're blocked for misdeeds, they're not going to be an effective content host. I wouldn't go there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wanted to provide this unedited example which would be odd for a hacker to counterfeit:

Tue, 2017-09-19 11:47:00 - ICMP packet - Source: 192.168.0.4 - Destination: 151.101.210.110 - [ICMP Type: 3 Code: 1 Icmp error message received for uninitiated connection. Orginal Src 151.101.210.110 Dst 192.168.0.4 TCP Src:443 Dst:49562, dropping packet from LAN]

Tue, 2017-09-19 11:47:15 - ICMP packet - Source: 192.168.0.4 - Destination: 151.101.208.175 - [ICMP Type: 3 Code: 1 Icmp error message received for uninitiated connection. Orginal Src 151.101.208.175 Dst 192.168.0.4 TCP Src:443 Dst:58954, dropping packet from LAN]

"Takes the Hell out of WTH "

What do you like best?

Ability to configure my app incoming traffic, security, using varnish to deliver content based on rules, caching, CDN, easy of integration..... list goes on

Lack of out of the box support to integrate varnish as a GIT project and manage it as regular code

GEt your app safer and more in your control with Fastly. Its just not a CDN. It is your own DNS abstraction

"Fast all SSD CDN for the new generation"

What do you like best?

It is fast, not just in name, their all SSD network put the customers content at milliseconds from the end user. It has presence on 4 continents and more are expected this year. GitHub, Twitter and Imgur trust Fastly for their CDN needs.

What do you dislike?

It has little to no presence in South America, South america is becoming larger and larger in the net and having presence there would be ideal for us

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fastly has a pay as your go service, similar to that of NearlyFreeSpeech.net, very cheap for low volume traffic, and very fair at high volume traffic

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gzip all endpoints to ensure webs are small and has a great Control panel with statistics and logs

"A great option for high performance CDN"

What do you like best?

Fastly has always been solid about providing a modern infrastructure to interact with when integrating with a CDN. Features like a well documented API are crucial for getting up to speed quickly.

What do you dislike?

Their admin interface could use some work. It's by no means the worst I've seen, but I've experienced some confusion in navigating their site in the past.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking to get better geographic presence closer to our clients. Some of our remote clients saw great improvements in speed purely by latency improvements.
